Annual banquet spotlights dairy industry

SANDUSKY — The annual salute to Sanilac County’s dairy industry is planned this month.

The 82nd Annual Sanilac County Dairy Banquet: A Celebration of Dairy is Jan. 20.

The banquet is held each year to celebrate the accomplishments of one of Sanilac County’s most important industries — dairy.

Sanilac County has one of the largest and most progressive dairy industries in Michigan and is an important contributor to the local economy.

It is estimated that the Sanilac County dairy industry generates nearly $140 million in gross revenue that is circulated through the local economy.

The banquet, which also features games for children and adults will take place Saturday, Jan. 20 at the Countryside Free Methodist Church – Family Life Center in Sandusky across from Tri- County Equipment.

The banquet committee is hoping to see more farmers this year with the move back to Sandusky. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and serving will begin at 7:15. Appetizers will be served.
